LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Miami player was accused of punching Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Levi Jones after the players exchanged trash talk at a casino blackjack table in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas police say Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter was issued a summons on a misdemeanor battery charge after the altercation that began yesterday inside the Palms hotel-casino.
An officer says Jones had a small cut above his eye.
Porter could face up to a year in jail and up to a one-thousand-dollar. No court date was immediately available.
Until last month Porter was with the Pittsburgh Steelers, a Cincinnati rival.
A police report says the two had a history of trash talking on the field.
